Rear louvers + Ice

Hey guys,

I'm pretty sure this is the right section for this question.

So, I'm interested in getting a set of rear louvers for my car. Question though, since I live in North Carolina and temperatures get low here, sometimes ice develops on the glass of the car and you have to scrape it off in the morning before work, etc.

Is this an issue for guys that have louvers because I don't know how you could access the glass besides just taking the louvers off to do it.

Thoughts? Opinions? Romantic queries?

Ok, is it the rear window or the sail panel window?

Well I don't think it would matter unless the snow is blowing into the louver. But if you bought a louver that opens then just put a trash bag under the louver...

Mine prevents any ice from covering the rear glass. But where I live its snows pretty heavy, so the rear louvers act as a magnet for snow buildup. Once it's in there and temps don't get above 32 then it's there till spring.
I don't scrape anything. Too easy to start a crack. I just go out 10 mins ahead of time and let it warm up.

Oh okay. Hmm, that sounds like it might work out fine then because we don't get much snow. Thanks.

Here is a picture of my Boss 302 with MRT louvers..The louvers will pop right up with a hidden prop. Just undo one hook type holder each side and the prop will hold the louver up while you clean the window when necessary.. Was very happy with these louvers

Ice wont bother it but snow would be a PITA. Good luck!
